This past weekend Gary, Bergey and went for a hike in the Eastern Alaska Range. We were trying to get to McCallum glacier on the other side of Rainbow Ridge along the Richardson highway between Paxson and Delta Junction. It was beautiful in Fairbanks and at the start of the hike it looked great. The plan was to hike the gravels of a stream up to a short mountain pass and then drop into a valley with the McCallum glacier at the head of it. A small bit of the Gulkana glacier also flows into it. But, as happens sometimes... the topo-map wasn't quite as exact as the terrain.
